After selling most of his vines in 2014 Jacques continued to make tiny quantities of trousseau up until the 2017 vintage. It comes from 35yo vines planted in loose, gravelly soil on a southeast-facing slope, perfect for the trousseau grape which demands very dry conditions. Classic pale colour similar to pinot noir, a touch more weight and depth of fruit than poulsard, with mulberries, raspberries & a hint of spice. 

Notes on the producer

Affectionately known as ‘Le Pape d’Arbois’, Jacques Puffeney officially retired after vinifying his 52nd vintage in 2014, selling the majority of his vineyards. This therefore was his 2nd to last vintage of this great wine so very limited bottles left available. In the cellar, everything happened as naturally as possible, vinification with wild yeast, no additives other than a pinch of sulphur, old foudres for fermentation and élevage. Vin Jaune is the Jura’s real speciality, from late-harvested savagnin, pressed and aged under a veil of yeast in old oak for six years then assembled and aged in foudre for a further year.
